Charlize Theron,Josh Brolin,Tommy Lee Jones,Susan Sarandon
In 2004, in Munro, Tennessee, the former Sergeant and gravel truck hauler Hank Deerfield tries to contact his son Mike in Fort Rudd after a period serving in Iraq. However, he is informed that his son is missing in the base and has become Absent Without Official Leave (AWOL). Hank drives to the base to search his son and after an interview with the military staff, he is not convinced of the answers; then he goes to the police precinct telling that Mike is a missing person. However, the jurisdictional conflict between the Army and the police associated to a lack of interest in the case leaves Hank in limbo. Detective Emily Sanders feels sympathy for Hank and together they investigate and discover dirty little secrets with an impressive case of dehumanization caused by the invasion and consequent war in Iraq.—Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
